Aries in natural astrology
by Richard Pellard
English translation by Julien Rouger

The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the problematics of this Sign. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the issues raised by a Sign. Through using the Theory of the zodiac and combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.

It’s possible that your Sun Sign is not dominant in your birth chart. One can for instance be born under the Aries Sign while the most valorized Sign is actually Taurus. In this case, it will probably be difficult for you to recognize yourself in the interpretations that are offered to you below. You will have to refer to the interpretations corresponding to your actual dominant Sign in order to relate to these. For further information, please feel free to visit our website and get a free mini-interpretation of your birth chart with our software Astrosoft.

Adapted Aries

S+Expending Excitation strength for Aries: the leader. First stage of the natural Excitation strength: daytime overrides nighttime, sweeps away its inhibitions and indifferences. An intact energetic potential that storms out and dashes into the environment. Animal aggressivity, pioneering activities, ardent and concrete sensations, absolute spontaneity, no a priori; an instinctive and powerful, dynamic and audacious force that pours out lavishly, a urge to take action that can’t tolerate any delay or limitation.

Q+Excitation quickness for Aries: the improviser. First stage of the Excitation quickness: a lightning mobilization of Excitation supplies. Aries hits the ground running, reactions are immediate, decisions are sudden. Moves are made right off, reflexes are instantaneous. Hectic paces, unlimited speeding up. Cyclothymic temper, fast adaptation to the environment’s fluctuations. Quick Excitation induces a liking for big effects: great fanfare, vivid colors, forceful picturesqueness.

SOSense of opposites for Aries: the decision maker. First stage of the Sense of opposites, polarized by the Excitation strength and quickness: one takes sides without hesitation nor subtleties, one is bluntly for or against, up to manichaeism. Brutal frankness, unwillingness to compromise, “he who is not with me is against me”. Since choices are quick, instinctive, thoughtless, adaptation might require calling these into question. In this case, complete turnarounds: what used to be adored is fought with equal violence.

S+SOThe leader-decision maker is an active and committed pace-setter, dynamic and intransigent, sacrificing oneself without consideration for the chosen cause.

Q+SOThe improviser-decision maker is more flexible and fluctuating: he has more a sense of tactics but his choices are more unpredictable, more prone to spectacular flip-flops.

Unadapted Aries

w−Eliminating Inhibition weakness for Aries: the impulsive. Aries is unable to develop any indifference, to stay stone-faced, to remain phlegmatic. Difficulty or impossibility to forget, to boycot, to wipe the slate clean. He charges in no matter what, driven to intoxication by the present moment. He’s fearless, impulsive, impatient, daredevil, short-sighted. The weakness of oblivion underlines the importance of memory: first impressions are indelible. The lack of distance, therefore of thought, makes him naive, gullible, ready to believe anything.

sl−Unadapted Inhibition slowness for Aries: the intractable. The brake is difficult to maneuver. Two solutions are possible. Either braking is impossible: impulsiveness has no limits anymore, it’s a constant accident, a vertigo of ceaseless confrontation with the external environment, an endless going overboard. Or rebooting is impossible: he managed to brake but can’t release the brake anymore. He then builds himself monolithic and unilateral defence systems. His refusals are rigid and never change, whatever the situation is. Entrenched, morbid resentment and grudges. The imagination is fascinated by legends, by baroque myths.

EPEgalitarian phase for Aries: the all-for-nothing. A monochrome aggressivity incites to fight everything altogether: everything is rejected and tarred with the same brush. Visceral hostility against “Tweedledums and Tweedledees”. Everyone is wrong, friends as well as enemies. Good is not better than evil. Narrow-minded refusals, mind deafness, rigid personal philosophy that mustn’t be questioned by anyone. The perception of antagonisms, once shifted to abstraction, amounts to a “me against the whole world”.

w−EPThe impulsive-all-for-nothing is an aggressive and fanatic diehard who refuses any compromise with the real world. He’s mad at the whole universe.

sl−EPThe intractable-all-for-nothing, less aggressive, more narrow-minded, retreated into a vengeful passivity, is always right against everyone and everything. NEXT
